Additive Manufacturing – a whole new world of welding technology requiring a new set of machines and skills

Additive Manufacturing – a whole new world of welding technology requiring a new set of machines andDuring October 10 and 11, EWF represented by its Chief Executive, Ing. Rute Ferraz participates at the Welding Additive Manufacturing Conference, one of the most important conferences sponsored by the American Welding Society.

The event addresses additive metal manufacturing (AMM), best described as a technology that uses existing welding processes to make final products from scratch. This technology will change the way products are manufactured. So, we are talking about a whole new world of welding technology. For this, new machines, like the one being developed in the LASIMM project, and new skills are required.
Considering this, Ing. Rute Ferraz will explain why machines, like the LASIMM machine, and new Qualifications, like the Qualification being prepared by EWF, are a must when it comes to taking AMM from research to industrial implementation.
